Ida Olsson

Expedition Leader

Ida is an expedition leader based in Svalbard who spent most of her adult life in the polar regions. In 2018 she skied to the North Pole and in 2019 she lead a group of women across Spitsbergen. After many years of guiding, she still loves to be in nature and to take adventurous travellers on the trip of a lifetime.
She was born in Sweden and was previously a high school teacher in physical education and history. During her time in school, she worked partly as a white water rafting and snowmobile guide. After some time working as a teacher, she began to work full-time as a guide in the wilderness in the northern part of Sweden. At the moment she lives in Longyearbyen and guides travellers on kayak, snowmobile, glacier hikes and boat trips.
